Lockdown caused by coronavirus has reduced air pollution. But now the virus is threatening to increase marine pollution.
In France, a group was cleaning the beach where they found used face masks and gloves. While the leader of the same group shared a deep-sea video, there were also face masks and gloves.
The environmental group says the discovery of these items off the coast is a wake-up call as the lockdown in Europe is coming to an end and people are flocking to the beaches due to the heat.
The group’s leader, who has also made a video of deep-sea pollution called it the beginning of a new kind of pollution.
